Following brand new characters and taking place a whole 70 years before the birth of the boy who lived, the latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts is sure to bring up a lot of questions. Take a look!
As mentioned above, Fantastic Beasts takes place in the same world Harry Potter fans the world over know and love, with the caveat of taking place generations in the past.
Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne) has been accused of some sort of magical crime only to be vouched for on behalf of Albus Dumbledore. Rumored to have unleashed myriad fantastical beasts upon the muggle realm, Newt Scamander must hurriedly recapture these creatures before irreparable harm comes to anyone and he be blamed.
Written by JK Rowling (the author of the world famous Harry Potter novels) and directed by David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.2), Fantastic Beasts features and all star cast including the Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Ron Perlman (as well as the aforementioned Redmayne). With a unique setting and a return to the imaginative world of Hogwarts, Fantastic Beasts looks poised to capture wide-eyed audiences once again.
